When booting Windows, I always have to check the registry and sometimes I am forced to restart the computer. In addition to re-installing my Windows, is there another way to cope with the registry at boot time?

I worry my computer will become damaged on the system if it must restart it by force.

This is displayed:

Chose advanced options for: Microsoft Vista (use the arrow keys to highlight your choice.)

safe mode
safe mode with networking
safe mode with command promt

enable boot logging
enable low-resolution video (640x480)
last known good configuration (advanced)
directory services restore mode
debugging mode
disable automatic restart on system failure
disable driver signature enforcement

start windows normally

Description: Start Windows with only the core drivers and services. Use when you cannot boot after installing a new or driver.

I'm little confused at the last line with installing a new or driver what that mean? Also have you see that booting option normally every time? – avirk Jun 5 '12 at 11:49
Hahahahah that's a normal thing when your windows mess up any major crash or some other new crappy app you can choose safe mode. If you think it can run normally then you can select Start Windows Normally. – avirk Jun 5 '12 at 12:03
@avirk, I ask, how to eliminate registry, because I feel tired and distracted if i am have to check the registry and sometimes if too long I have to restart the computer!! – BrianTakan Jun 5 '12 at 12:17
My apologies I still not understand completely that about which registry you are talking about? Do you want to remove the registry of a specific program? If you want to remove these options from starting then I'm not sure its possible as I think it can't be achieve. – avirk Jun 5 '12 at 12:30
You are getting this message because there is a problem. You need to find the problem. have you chosen Safe Mode and allowed it to boot completely? Then when you do a normal restart does it still come to this menu? – CharlieRB Jun 5 '12 at 13:04
